Protesters crash US soldiers funeral, telling the soldiers mother that he is going to

hell.

Rather disturbing and shocking story on CNN.

A mother was burying her son, a soldier killed in Afghanistan. A group of "funeral protesters" yelled and porotested the funeral shouting out that her son was going to hell.

The mother went up to the protesters shook thier hand and just asked them to leave and they continued to yell and tell her her son was going to hell.

The story was on CNN thursday.

WASHINGTON — It was a typical scenario for the Westboro Baptist Church — another demonstration outside the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq. This time the venue was Meadowood Baptist Church in Midwest City, Okla., noted a full rundown of the event recorded later by church members on their Web site.

The signs held by members that Feb. 2 were dutifully noted on the church's web-journal: "Steve held 'Thank God for Dead Soldiers,' 'You're Going to Hell' and 'Fags Doom Nations' while Shirl held 'America is Doomed,' 'God is America's Terror' and 'Don't Worship the Dead' with a flag tied around her waist

Well, that was totally unnecessary. Whether they supported the war or not, they should respect the dead.

What I'm trying to figure out is exactly why they're doing this. Don't they understand that they're putting their cause and reputation to waste by doing retarded shit like this?

This is the Fred Phelps group. They never had a cause or reputation.

^ They'll probably just roar back at you incoherently. And when I say roar, I mean they'll literally roar 'cause that's the pinnacle of their understanding of the English language.

Ha, I knew that this was Phelps just by reading the title. That guy seriosuly needs to shut up. How one guy can be such a complete asshole is beyond me. The beahivour of him and his group is completely unnecessary.

Plus I agree with Med. The media needs to stop covering these guys. If everyone ignored them they'd go away and leave everyone in peace.

I bet there's some inbreeding going on there, too.

At least Fred Phelps will probably die in the not too distant future...

People like that can go to hell. It's like this, people misinterpret the Bible so much. It says somewhere in the Bible that being homosexual is bad, but not a sin. But what is also in the Bible is you are supposed to love everyone, even your enemies. Those bastards saw the first thing I said and skipped the second.

I couldn't care less if you supported the war or not, if you think it's a good thing that someone died, then it's basic human decency to stay away from the funeral. Also I wish the press would stop covering them so much. Everyone knows that they're retarded, but they get so much recognition in the press and I can't see what the purpose of it is.
I don't think i've ever disagreed with anything you'v ever said. As such i agree completely

These people believe they're the righteous, when in fact they're exactly the opposite to Jesus Christ who they claim to follow. Quite sad really.

Honestly.

These people don't believe in a specific cause. They only exist to annoy, disrespect, and totally dismantle the idea of human decency.

I'd love to see somebody such as them at their own loved one's funeral, gie them a taste of their own disgusting lunacy.

I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen at Phelps' funeral, which given his age, shouldn't be too far down the road.

I see.

Knowing this, it is probably set into a plan of some sort to do that.

I'm just waiting for the point where they do one of these protests and someone just punches Phelps right the fuck out.

He and his little cult hopefully won't last too much longer. As soon as he kicks, it should be the beginning of the end. For the most part, these people are so horrifyingly stupid they couldn't find their asses with both hands and a flashlight.

What I can't wrap my mind around is just how far one must divorce oneself from reality in order to buy into crap like this.

The thing is, they're not even protesting the war. They're just shoving their hatemongering down people's throats.

I had never heard of Fred Phelps before, but I decided to read up on him. And all I can say is I hope he dies soon. Very soon.
